>> who needed this opportunity the most? >> well, mitt romney needed to win what i'd call the convention period. and he did not. i mean, when you look at the democratic convention, each night they had a specific thing they wanted to do. michelle obama did the character. bill clinton did the unprecedented economic argument. and then president obama did the, you know, hey, the -- made the case for looking forward. each night seemed to have a theme that fit together. look at tampa. you did not have the same thing. it was all about trying to fix the likability ratings, but not a lot of memorable specific details for instance on what a mitt romney presidency would look like.
7:11am
>> yeah. and democrats have been chiding the republicans for not putting more meat on the bones on their ideas. on the other hand, the president's advisers promised there would be specifics in the speech. did you hear any new policy or substance? >> i heard nothing new. more of a -- you know, look, the incumbent trying to make the don't change horses in midstream and making the case that the same ideas he's been advocating that haven't been passed. he will now push to try to them be passed. you didn't hear, you know what, this is going to be how we'll deal with the debt and deficit or entitlement reform or how we'll deal with the housing crisis. you didn't hear anything other than we have to keep on keeping on. it's a tough argument to make, but no choice. >> next big moments in the campaign, the debates. chuck todd we know you'll be there. thank you for your coverage this week. and a programming note, mitt romney will be david gregory's guest on "meet the press." >> thank you, savannah.

7:13am
>> reporter: harry will deal with a different kind of steam in helmand. no longer king of the pool party, he will soon be flying apaches in the volatile afghan province, providing air cover for military missions. >> working together with his squadron, he'll be in a difficult and demanding job. and i ask that he be left to get on with his duties and allow to focus and delivering support to the coalition troops on the ground. >> reporter: stationed at camp past y bastion, one of the largest in the country, he won't be far from his other base. his 2008 deployment was kept a secret by the army for fear that he would become a taliban target. but his mission was cut short when an australian gossip magazine leaked pictures of the prince in combat. he's been itching to get back ever since, but will his vegas antics put him in the outs with his military mates? >> there's no question that the army would have been disappointed with the publicity
7:14am
surrounding his antics in vegas, but the truth is he's a good apache pilot and one of the best in his squad. >> reporter: as harry returns to military fatigues, his royal duties and charity work will be put on hold, at least for now. while he serves in the most important role of his life and for his country. as a british soldier, not a prince. well, those vegas pictures may have gotten him in trouble with the palace, but he has dozens of supports waiting for him in helmand and pictures have surfaced of his comrades in arms stripping down and saluting their prince. but matt, i should mention that it is getting chilly in afghanistan. so we don't expect any more stripteases. >> that's a little weird. thank you very much. we appreciate that. it's now 14 after the hour. here's savannah. >> thank you. officials at yosemite
7:15am
national park are extending an alert on the hanta virus after eight deaths were reported. we have more. >> reporter: yeah, the alerts have now gone out internationally on this because over the last couple of months people have visited yosemite from all over the world. this is a serious outbreak and the third of the cases turn out to be fatal. the cdc originally thought 10,000 people were exposed to the virus here and they believe that number is even higher. because the virus can take as long as six weeks to develop some of the symptoms that people might notice, health officials believe that the number of cases will rise. >> hi there. welcome to yosemite. >> reporter: california's yosemite national park is known for its majestic peaks. stunning waterfalls and vast wilderness. but this summer it's become infamous for a deadly outbreak. >> information about the virus. >> reporter: now along with the park, park rangers are handing out information on avoiding infections spread by rodents and their droppings.

>> really really are out with education in the outreach. >> reporter: they have closed down the popular tent cabins a village of 91 camping tents after finding deer mice inside the walls. >> there's a lot of the outbreaks occurring because we're at the end of summer. it's the time of year where people are outside and coming in contact with the infected road ends. >> reporter: it can mimic the flu virus and can take up to six weeks to appear. >> you get these sort of chills and fever. nausea. and that progresses eventually to a pulmonary infection that can be quite dangerous. >> reporter: because yosemite attracts people from around the world, the threat has spread quickly. health officials in france are now investigating two possible cases linked to yosemite. but the hanta virus isn't the only one concerning public health officials. a 7-year-old is recovering from
7:17am
a disease also spread by rodents. one that was supposed to have been wiped out centuries ago -- bubonic plague. >> we don't want any other children to have to go through this. >> the war on the west nile virus is far from over. >> reporter: elsewhere, cases of the deadly west nile virus have surfaced in more than 38 states. >> 118 cases have been confirmed. seven oklahomans have died. >> reporter: more than 1,900 people have been sickened and 87 have died so far this year from the west nile virus. experts say the best way to prevent the disease is to avoid mosquito bites. >> it's just common sense. make sure when you're outside, especially at dusk and dawn, you wear insect repellent that you even spray over clothes because mosquitoes can bite you through thin layers. >> reporter: and back here at yosemite, the 91 cabins where most of the cases originated have been closed indefinitely. park rangers are handing out warnings to those coming here, but many are not coming. there were a lot of cancellations over labor day and

7:20am
operations and passenger inconvenience. but christopher shell's day of adventure wasn't quite over when he eventually got to dallas late thursday, local police were waiting. they arrested him on some existing warrants in texas, but they stressed that those older charges had nothing to do with the hoax call in philadelphia. authorities say they believe they do know who called in the phony tip and whoever is arrested will likely face serious federal charges. authorities want to make it clear that such hoaxes will not be tolerated. >> all right, pete, thank you very much. a new study suggests that women who possess genes that make them more susceptible to breast cancer have a higher r k risk.3 c3 es posible que tengan un 43% de when a semicame roaring by at high speed.

>> reporter: eight and a half years after her death savio's family is jubilant. >> finally someone heard kathleen's fly. twelve people did the right thing. >> savio was found dead in the waterless bathtub of his suburban home in 2004. originally it was ruled an accidental drowning. then when peterson's fourth wife stacy went missing in october 2007, suspicions were raised. savio's body was exhumed, her death ruled a homicide. extensive searches for 23-year-old stacy peterson turned up nothing and she remains missing to this day. drew peterson insisted stacy had run off with another man. he spoke with matt in november 2007. >> can you look me straight in the eye and tell me you had nothing to do with the death of your third wife kathy or the disappearance of your fourth wife stacy. >> i can look right in your eye and say i had nothing to do with either of those instances. >> reporter: but acquaintances

7:36am
she told me multiple times he said he was going to kill me. she was terrified of the guy. >> john, there was a lot of controversy and a lot of talk during this trial there might be a mistrial because there was so much hearsay allowed into this based on drew's law out there in illinois. do you think that law and hearsay now jeopardizes this verdict? >> not at all, matt. the illinois supreme court has ruled on the constitutionality of it, upheld it. it's commonly referred to as the voice from the grave. basically it says someone can't benefit by silencing another person who has incriminating testimony against them and it's fair. >> but do you think that drew peterson could have been convicted or would have been convicted were it not for that hearsay? >> it would have been more difficult, but this is just the perfect crime just got a little more difficult to commit. all things considered it's equitable, fair, constitutional and the conviction will stand
7:37am
that. >> i'm interested in your take on this. stacy peterson's family hopes the attention will turn to their loved one. what would you like to say to them about the perseverance they are going to need and the time it perhaps could take for them to see justice? >> well, i've talked to them. i told them, i said, eventually it will come. i'm praying for them. anything i can do to help you i will definitely do. it's tough losing someone you love. i miss my sister desperately. at least i know where she is and what happened. not knowing, i can't imagine how horrible that has to be. >> anna, i thank you for your time this morning. we really appreciate it. john, always good to see you. thank you as well. >> thank you. >> you can see more on the story on "dateline," 10:00, 9:00 central time right here on nbc. let's get a check of the weather from al roker. >> thanks very much. a rick of strong storms from
